One Hundred Siberian Postcards
By

Rating

"Entrancing. . . . Each snow-bright 'postcard' catches a facet of Siberian myth, history or wildlife, from mutant fish to marauding bears. From the 'land of mines, ' he digs up gem after glittering gem."-The Independent

"A magical book."-The Times

Richard Wirick and his wife go to Siberia to adopt a baby girl. Rather than produce a straightforward account of this journey, Wirick has chosen instead to produce one hundred interlocking vignettes in order to evoke for his new daughter the grandeur of her birthplace.

Richard Wirick's fiction, essays, and journalism have appeared in Fiction, Quarterly West, Playboy, and Another Chicago Magazine. He is co-founder and editor of the journal Transformation.

Anna Reid, author of Borderland: A Journey through the History of Ukraine 'Wirick's profoundly moving book is unlike anything else I've read; an ode to Siberia as much as it is to the human condition.' Samantha Gillison, author of The King of America 'Attentive and compassionate, Richard Wirick has journeyed through Siberia and returned with it.' John Witte, Editor of Northwest Review
